    New Kiln test

    I just fired up my new Olympic 1214T-120 small kiln. I used a 06 cone bar that was with the kit from the lady I purchased it from. The cone bar was sealed in a little plastic box and they all look dry and healthy. The previous owner said she bought the kiln 5 years ago. It had NEVER been fired. The Kiln has a kiln sitter and a timer that will turn off the kiln if the cone fails. I set 12 hours on the timer and just checked on it. It has only been on for less than 3 1/2 hours. The cone is melted and when I peeked inside it is not a glowing hot. It is very hot though. The kiln was empty. No shelving or other pottery. So Help! Why did it fire so fast? I did not use test cones inside as I did not have a platform for them.
